06 Aug Fecal Incontinence: What Are Your Product Options?
“I struggle with fecal incontinence as well as urinary. Do you have any products that could help? – X.J., Millbrook, NY
Absolutely! You are not alone in managing both urinary and fecal incontinence. Fortunately you have a few options, depending on your level of need. For light fecal incontinence, we offer Butterfly® Body Patches, which are very small and discreet and are just right for light bowel leakage.
Butterfly® Body Patches feature an absorbent core, odor shield and stay-fast wings. We carry two sizes for women and one universal size for men. They are also eligible to be added to your Personalized Delivery Plan™ (PDP) to ensure that you have them when you need them.
These patches can be used by themselves or with another absorbent product, such as a urinary incontinence pad. Briefs or protective underwear are your best options for maximum security, containment and heavier leakage. A brief is the best, but can be difficult for an active person to change.
Protective underwear provides protection similar to that of a brief, yet is discreet for an active lifestyle. Briefs and protective underwear are available in a wide range of sizes and absorbencies for both men and women.
Please call us at 1-800-2MY-HOME® (1-800-269-4663) and we’ll guide you through your options based on your individual needs and work with you to find the best solution.
Thank you for reaching out to HDIS for assistance. We’re always happy to help!
